    One thought on “Cursefell (Venom Borne, #1)”

    1. Wow! What a read! I am a huge fan of 'Atlantis' and the 'Percy Jackson' books, and this book was pretty much level pegging with them!Without giving anything away, the plot line was very intriguing, and included lots of twists and turns. The beginning was engaging, and I struggled to put the book down. Consequently, I read this book over the course of 3 days! I liked how the ending was a cliffhanger too.I loved how each of the three main characters; Thera, Isabel and Galead, had their own air of [...]

    2. I received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.The book cover hinted at a mermaid based tale while the blurb didn't give away much about the story. The only clue was that the heroine, Nathera has a secret curse hanging over her. It was all mysterious and that piqued my curiosity. I was right and wrong at the same time, because there are mermaids in it and yet the book is much more. It has an unique plot involving mythical creatures with darker connotation.Th [...]

    3. Cursefell by CV Dreesman is a well written, original and unique fantasy story involving mythology as the backdrop for the storyline.The book has a rather slow beginning after the initial dramatic action of the first chapter, but then the pace picks up and things start to happen as more and more of the story is revealed.Nathera is the leading female character and I found her to be very likeable. She grows throughout the story and by the end of the book she has gained more of an understanding of w [...]

    4. The blurb alone is what drew me to this book and I was thrilled when it was released, and anxious to start reading it. I was thoroughly satisfied with this book all the way around. The main character, Nathera, is a strong female who at the same time recognizes and confronts her vulnerabilities. Independent but still needs people. Mysterious. The character interaction went smoothly yet at the same time had unexpected moments. The storytelling is so vivid, I forgot I was snug in my favorite readin [...]

    5. was a good book very interesting but I got confused at the end, I would recommend this book to any of my friends that like Mystery and Greek mythology. The author of this book is a good author and I am hoping that he continues with a sequel to this book I would definitely read it.

    6. I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)I had no idea what to expect, the blurb was incredibly vague despite being detailed (if that makes sense) but I have to admit, this story did more for me in 112 pages than another story did for me in 300.I was pleasantly surprised with Cursefell, being a lover of Greek Mythology, I was swallowed up by this fantastic world that C.V. Dreesman has created, it was a fresh twist on a theme that has done its rounds, wit [...]

    7. This book was recommended by Floryie (check her blog!) and got chosen as read of the month. What made me choose it was that curse mentioned of the summary I just had to know which kind of curse.First, this book is soooooo short! It felt more like a short story than a book, seriously. For such a short book I felt like the beginning was a bit slow but then suddenly bibidi-babidi-bu out of nowhere everything happens! She almost dies, gets a boyfriend —a boy she never thought of before but who has [...]

    8. The Cursefell, it an intriguing story that tells of the lineage of the mystical Gorgon Medusa and her blood line. Nathera, the girl who has become the heir to Medusa, problem is that everyone in her life had hidden the truth of what she is to her. All grown up now and finding out from strangers that she has the power to turn humans to stone just like medusa. She finds it hard to comprehend what she is to become or what she is on the inside. The powers within her she must control as she fights th [...]

    9. If you enjoy Greek mythology, then this book is for you!The first book in it's series, Cursefell succeeds in pulling you into the plot with an unexpected beginning. Nathera, our 17-year-old main character, is the present day heir of the ancient Medusa. This story follows Thera as she discovers that the world isn't as it has seemed.I enjoyed this fast read greatly and look forward to the following books. The only issue I have with Cursefell, is: Cliffhanger! Ignoring that, I would recommend this [...]

    10. A Dark FantasyThe author, in his blurb, gives little away about the book, which is good. He writes just enough to whet our appetites. When the book is finished, it ends on a cliffhanger so the reader wants to read on. Other than one chapter which was a difficult to understand dream sequence the writing was clear. This was a bit too dark, however, and had a definitely negative tone to it.

    11. Great readSlightly reminiscent of the Percy Jackson series. A truly gripping tale. Had me excited from beginning to end. Looking forward to reading more of this series.

    12. 3.5 stars rounded up to 4This one was a bit of a mixed bag for me. Let me start by saying — I love the idea behind the book. It could turn out to be a very interesting story. There were times when I really enjoyed the story and the authors writing and there were times I was bogged, slowing the story down. Inside the story the author has gone to great effort to be creative in the way they are describing the scenery and the way that people look. Sometimes this was a perfect match and sometimes I [...]

    13. I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)I gave this book 3 stars although it is a really good book because simply it is not exactly my thing.The story is very well-written. There are paragraphs that are just simply beautiful. However, sometimes, I find the quotes quite confusing.It is also quite fast-paced, page-turning. The plot is interesting. The stories really capture my attentions. I love the explanations of the myths. It got me really interested i [...]

    14. 3.5 stars for meAfter finishing Cursefell, I feel that I have more questions than answers. Seeing as this is the first in a series, that is to be expected, but I think some of the unanswered questions took away from my immersion into the story. It seems like everyone has secrets that they are unwilling to share, and everyone has a story that another can't share. Yet the ones who should be sharing aren't sharing either. Hopefully, the sequel will reveal moreI received a copy of this book from the [...]

    15. Well was different from the other supernatural novels they have floating around these days. However, I'm not sure it was my favorite out of all of them. Because it was so short everything was happening way to fast, especially the relationship between Thera and Galead, who one day he didn't seem interested in here and then the next day he is macking all over her in front of her friends. I do like that they have a good amount of characters based off of Greek mythology, so kudos on that.
